Please contact Adrian Wood firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested to submit presentation proposals and/or wish to seek general information and details on RA IV.
RA IV is a technical symposium. It showcases the work of archives, technical service providers and distributors, both from within and outside Asia, to highlight the measures being taken to preserve the audio-visual heritage of Asia. It is designed for archivists, conservators, heritage professionals, technical personnel and scholars, amongst others.
SEAPAVAA inaugurated the Restoration Asia event in 2012 in Ho Chi Minh City. The 2nd and 3rd editions of Restoration Asia were held in Bangkok (2013) and Singapore (2015) respectively.

Theme: AV Archiving Beyond Boundaries
May I give you the heads up that the 22nd SEAPAVAA Conference will take place from 7 to 12 April 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand. The theme is AV Archiving Beyond Boundaries.
Our local hosts are the Film Archive (Public Organization) and The Government Public Relations Department (PRD) Museum and Archive.
General information, call for presentation proposals and registration details will be progressively posted on the conference website when ready.
You may wish to know that Friday 13 April 2018, is also the first day of the famed Songkran Festival. If you are planning to attend the conference, you may want to extend your stay and participate in the "water wars" in Bangkok thereafter.
